Ready to add some spice to your snacks? Ground cumin and coriander add a warm floral note to this hummus dip, and the sesame oil provides a hint of nuttiness to complement the tahini paste.
The trick to making smooth and creamy hummus is to blend the ingredients in a food processor or high-speed blender for a minimum of 5 minutes. The garlic is pulsed in at the end so that it doesn't overpower the hummus with a fiery garlic flavor.
